The Pack goes camping

Toongabbie Cubs held a camp at
Heathcote  in October.

The pack got to help set up their campsite and experience fun activities like bushwalking, following a trail and cracking the code, cooking pikelets and finding water.
They also had an ‘Australiana’ themed campfire as part of the
Great Aussie Bush Camp Out Weekend.

Here are some of their comments from the weekend -
“During the period of camp, there were so many exciting activities, including a game we made up. I will call it “Hide and Find” – it’s like “Hide and Seek” with walkie talkies. Campfire night was amazing – we got to roast big marshmallows! I recommend this to the other Cubs who have not gone on a camp.”  -Z

3 Breakfast 4 Cooking

“First off my favourite part was when we went to the pool which was like a lake, and it was really clear, yet I thought since it was in the bush it would be really dirty. I really enjoyed sleeping in tents overnight as this was my first experience, and I’ve never slept without the comfort of my parents. I also really liked how they gave us healthy food since we were in camp, and the food that we were given really gave me the energy to do the activities.” -L

5 Bushwalking 6 Wakeup

“We played with the Walkie talkies. The game was boys hide girls find, it was really really fun. It was a really long game. For morning tea we cooked the pancakes on a grill with cream. It was delicious. We learned how to find water from plants and how to get clean water. We started packing up and helping taking the tents outs.  I really enjoyed camp because it was interesting to learn codes and signs.” -M
